Nevertheless, some say they’ve been showing off their messiness long before Colleen’s viral tweet. “I show my reality all the time…” one begins. “Motherhood is not easy… ALL MOMS wear dark-circled eyes, milk-stained shirts (of course for breastfeeders like me), comfy pants, baggy shirts, and ratted hair. PROUD!!!!”
Hopefully, Colleen’s bold move will get more moms to show this side of motherhood that’s often hidden from the public eye. Congratulations and thank you to new moms everywhere for doing the good work.
